"An easier and funnier version of Phoenix Wright"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game carries much the same sort of humour as the TV show – so if you're not a fan of Adult Swim style humour, then this isn't the game for you. Having said that, for someone who IS a fan, like myself, this game will have you laughing the whole way through – it has a great variety of old and new jokes within it.

The actual gameplay is almost exactly like that of Phoenix Wright – differences being that without a touch screen you just have to scroll through options rather than seek them out yourself, which sadly takes some of the challenge out of it. I would say that there is a similar degree of problem solving in this game though – particularly in trying to seek out new evidence.

The cases, though very funny, I found often lacked a resolved ending – but then, this is a game that was intended entirely for humour rather than gameplay, I believe. The game is also a lot shorter than I thought it would be – having played Phoenix Wright, I'm used to cases taking a few hours to solve. In Harvey Birdman, each case took about half an hour to an hour to solve, which meant that I finished the game in a night.

Overall though, this game is great for a bit of light hearted gameplay, and I would highly recommend it to fans of Adult Swim and Phoenix Wright.

Description

Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law is a fully animated interactive adventure game that merges the fun and mayhem of the popular Adult Swim TV show with Capcom's unique style of gameplay. Players will step into the shiny wingtips of Harvey Birdman, a third-rate superhero turned third-rate defense attorney charged with exonerating parodied classic cartoon characters.

Over the course of the game, players must guide Harvey through a series of odd and comical cases. Each of the game's five interactive stories takes the winged crusader of justice to familiar locations from the TV show. In order to prove his client's innocence, Harvey must peruse the scene of the crime, gather evidence, talk with other cartoon characters, occasionally have drinks with opposing council, and of course, tear holes - no matter how ridiculous - in the testimony provided by the witness for the prosecution. Harvey must bring the whole story together to defend his client in a court where anything can happen… including a confrontation with the prosecution who brandishes a Shrink Ray Gun. With outrageous gameplay and the comical antics of hilarious animated characters, players and fans alike will feel that they are not just taking control of a character, but actually taking part in a brand new episode of Harvey Birdman.
